Ancient Lyra Recital – Nikos Xanthoulis

Nikos Xanthoulis presents a two-sided recital. The first part will present works of the new (in contrast to the ancient, if we may say that it really exists) repertoire of the lyre that he has composed over the last ten years. In the second part, we will be transported to a coast, near Ancient Troy, with one and only goal: to hear Achilles play his golden phorminx, expressing through it his innermost thoughts.
